Subject: [xsl] Problem with xsl:sort and German Umlauts with libxslt

Hi all,

I have got a problem while sorting german text.

I want to sort thess country names:


After using

<xsl:for-each select="country"><xsl:sort select="."/></xsl:for-each>

the list ends up in the following order:


which is not the right german alphabetic sorting.
As I read in XSLT-Programmers reference (by Michael Kay), this is the
swedish way to sort?!

For the XSL-Transformation I use libxslt-1.0.14 under FreeBSD 4.3.

Do I have to use the lang-attribute for xsl:sort?
I read in the libxslt manual, that the lang-attribute ist not supported by
but how can I solve this problem?
Does the newer gdome2 has language-specific sorting support?

Any suggestions for that?

Yours Jo Seibert
